“Just a spoonful of sugar…….”

There are 4 grams of sugar per 1 tsp.

The next time you pick of a soda, yogurt, package of cookies, candy bar, etc.  look at the nutritional label.  If the sugar content says 32 grams, do some quick math.  32 grams / 4 grams = 8 tsps….. yes, that means 32 grams of sugar is 8 tsps of sugar in that cup of yogurt, can of pop, or whatever.

You now have the ability to know how many teaspoons of sugar you are consuming in any product you place in our mouth just by using the data on the label.  It might help you decide to say “no” to that item and replace it with a better option….less sugar option:)
